In January 2010, the Baheth Center for Strategic & Palestinian Studies confirmed Israeli depleted uranium (DU) use, saying:
"The ruined buildings and debris left after the Israeli attack on Gaza are contaminated with depleted uranium and similar types of weapons." London-based Palestinian Return Center activist Sameh Habeeb reported it.
Nuclear experts confirmed it. Contamination is permanent. Current and future generations will suffer enormously. Nothing is safe to eat or drink. Cancer and other diseases may become epidemic.
In May 2011, Press TV headlined "Cancer cases on the rise in Gaza," saying:
Shifa Hospital is Gaza's main healthcare provider. Doctors reported many more cancer patients. Norwegian physician volunteers said some victims have DU traces in their bodies.
Environmental damage and pollution are byproducts of war and continued conflict.
Post-Cast Lead readings show some Gazan areas are "1,000 times more radioactive than natural levels, and now cancer cases emerge on a daily basis."
Affected patients live in mainly bombed areas. Others in Gaza are affected. DU munitions aerosolize on impact. Wind spreads toxic residue. Contaminated air, water and soil results.
Post-war cancer rates increased 30%. Expect continued escalation for many more years. Israel has no concern for human suffering.
Civilians are willfully targeted to inflict as much as possible. It's official strategy in all violent attacks. Accountability is long overdue.
A Final Comment
Beware of false flags. For months throughout the Syrian conflict, possible full-scale Western intervention loomed. It still does. Post-US elections, it's more likely though not certain.
Easy to manufacture pretexts launch wars. America did it repeatedly for over a century. Most-recently, 9/11 initiated a belligerent holocaust. It continues unabated.
Syrian and Iranian regime change is longstanding US policy. All means are considered. War is the bottom line option when others fail.
On November 11, a stray mortar shell from Syria struck occupied Golan. No injuries were reported. A statement said Israel fired cross-border warning shots in response. It added:
"The IDF has filed a complaint through the UN forces operating in the area, stating that fire emanating from Syria into Israel will not be tolerated and shall be responded to with severity."
